Preview: Exhibition of 'Recent prints from Wiltshire & Italy' - by College's Head of Art Edward Twohig
The next exhibition in the Mount House Gallery is by Edward Twohig (Head of Art, Marlboorugh College) - ‘Recent prints from Wiltshire and Italy’. It opens on Frida,y 31st January. College student Esther Lambert went along for a preview.
Saturday (August 10) saw the return of Marlborough Rising Talent at the Town Hall - a free event showcasing the musical ability of various performers from the Marlborough area. This year the musicians each played a longer set, mostly made up of original songs, an admirable feat considering the ages of those who took part.
On my way to Timmy Saville’s exhibition at the White Horse Gallery, I walked past the Costa coffee shop.
Despite the arrival of Storm Brendan on Monday, Movida was packed upstairs for the arrival of London-based punk-pop band, The Big Moon. Playing a short set followed by a signing at Sound Knowledge in order to promote their new album, Walking Like We Do, the band offered a glimpse of their new material and old favourites before heading off on their UK tour supporting Bombay Bicycle Club, which starts on 20 January in Cambridge.
Since Kaleido Bay’s exceptional set at Marlborough Rising Talent in September last year, marlborough.news has been following the band’s progress – January saw this reporter attending their high energy gig at The Vic in Swindon and talking to the boys about their future plans.
